LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Riches, whatever their charm and their value, are not a panacea for the evils of life. . . . Happiness depends on work, health, character, disposi tion, tfaining, and a great many other things besides income, and so far as happiness is concerned, enough money, or somewhat less than enough, puts us in just about as good a case to achieve it as though we were rich. To live our lives, to get out what is in. us, to do our share of the world's work and live brotherly with our fel lows—that is what we are here for. If riches are a" incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dent. If the chase after them lures us away from the fulfilment'of our pri mary obligations to our. Maker, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if, succeeding, we lose the Christmas out of our year, the Christmas spirit out of our lives. .

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If you don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do its* work efficiently. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say th^ hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost .sure to awake somewhere near it. By extending this system you can obtain a quite .serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion. like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you ...

TALBOT. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

TALBOT. In the earl.v part of the morn ing the school children were given the set programme of lessons, and at 10.30 Mr Jas. Hillard (head teacher) handed over con trol of proceedings to Mr Edwd. Chalmers (chairmau of the school committee), when songs, recita tions, aad addresses were given. Mr Chalmers opened proceedings by briefly addressing the child ren, remarking that they must not look forward to Empire Day celebrations merely because they were given a holiday and a picnic. The day was founded in order that they should assemble to gether once a year as a reminder of the fact that they were part and parcel of the greatest and best empire in existence, and must, as they grew up, take their share in assisting in maintaining that greatness—to become worthy sons and daughters of a worthy empire. The Rev C. Mason (Methodist) opened his remarks by congratu lating them on the fine building they possessed—it was an evi dence that Talbot had seen better days. The speaker then pro ceeded...

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

REASONS FOR ADVERTIS ING. :0: Many husinoss men advertise only a certain seasons of the year, many pr-j ferring the fall of early spring. But tiie experience of advertisers who have ms-le he subject a study is that persistent >'<l vertisiug is the best aud returns mure profit considering the outlay than adver tising by fits and starts. It keeps one al ways before the public in a sense, and the prayer of the daily or weekly repeti tion of an advertisement is inestimable A French writer says that the first time a person sees an advertisement he hardly notices it; the second time, he rrmesnbers he has seen it before ; the third time, he reads it; the fourth time, he wonders if it meets his wants; and the fifth time, he buys the article. This, at least, is hum ad nature. A 6iugle insertion of an adver tisement seldom produces much impres sion, but let that advertisement V,a re peated for a month or six months, and satisfactory results generally will follow People remember ...

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

GO-AHEAD VILLAGE. As a result of the hobby of a young resident in Hurstmonceaux, this pretty Sussex village now enjoys all the advantages of an electric light in stallation. , Mr. C. W. Von Roemer, son of Baron Yon Roemer, took , up electrical engineering as a hobby a few years ago, fitting up his. father's house with electric light. To:day, as the. result of this early hobby, the vil lage at night resembles a patch of Piccadilly, and housewives turn on a switch to cook their husbands' din ners and heat their rooms. When I visited this "electric vil lage," says a writer, I found that nearly everybody, including the blacksmith, butcher and ba.ker, were using electric power to help them in their work. Mr. Von Roemer explained how. the "miracle" had been brought about. "After fitting up my father's house with electric light," he said, "I though it would be a good idea to ex tend; the plant to the village. "At first the villagers objected. They had never known any other light except can...

Presented by an usher, he surveyed the bride, whom he bad never seen before, and then, with the utmost deliberation, proceed ed to say:— "William, I think thy bride has shown more judgment in her choice than thou hast." Fortunately, before the newly-mar ried man could turn to resent this strange- salutation, he continued as follows:— "Because it takes some penetration to discover thy good qualities, but hers can be seen at-a glance." " When a man wishes to depreciate another man he attacks bis intelli gence; he calls him a fool or an idiot. But when a woman attacks a woman, sbe always goes for her face.

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." From the time he emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until lie was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath-, cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those thirty years among the northern Indians and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then "was, held lr'mself strictly to the niceties of life;, so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the ■highest office in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to 'be overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the-Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a .rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no -woman shall foe allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The watchers were amazed; for to them the wash-line suggested onl...

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 30 May 1914

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. . . Hugh had a vague idea as to Mat Michel's reason for their , voyage to Cherbourg: hut. it. was very indefinite and the philosopher no longer spoke about it. A brusque "Ye shall know when the time comes," was the best that could be got out of him, and even George Hedges, with a prime .clerical faculty of interrogation, did, next to nothing with such a secret oracle. Mat feared to disappoint his friends and held his tongue. The only person on board who seemed to un derstand him was Madame Adele. Cintra, all said and done, had been but a house of captivity to. her. 4 neurotic dream of love," dreamed by one who was doomed to die, had giv en place speedily to the darker hour when she had come to understand tin tragic jest which Fate had planned for her. Taken from her home as by magic, now- she turned wistful eyes to France again, desiring the little house by the railway, and the.-friends to whom she was flesh and blood and not the Madonna of a ...

Ha really thought that a usually clever woman was losing her wits. "What, Minnie, but you said your self that it was doing me a devilish lot of good, now, didn't you?" " "You are certainly better for a few days of sobriety, Desmond . . . I think if you continue, that you may live some years longer.
